Fall 2008 Final Exams
•Exam Schedule. The final exam schedule for the current semester is available here. You will be notified of the classroom assignments for your exams prior to the start of exam period.
•Exam Conflict/Reschedule Requests: October 28-November 12. The Student Handbook requires that you take your final exams at the times scheduled unless you have an exam conflict (as defined below), or you have a "serious illness or other extraordinary or compelling reason" beyond your control. If you have an exam conflict or believe you have other reasons justifying the rescheduling of an exam, please complete the Final Exam Reschedule form. To complete the form, log into your Webmail account, click on the Web for Students icon, and navigate to the Final Exam Reschedule form. The form will be available beginning October 28; the deadline for submitting an exam reschedule request is Wednesday, November 12, at 5:00 pm. This deadline will be strictly enforced. If your request is approved, you will be notified later this semester of the rescheduled date, time, and location of your exam.
Under current policy, a student is deemed to have an "exam conflict" if the student has two exams at the same time, or has two or more exams within 24 hours (e.g., exams at 8:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., or at 6:00 p.m. and 1:15 the following afternoon). A conflict does not exist if two exams are scheduled exactly 24 hours apart (e.g., exams at 8:30 a.m. one morning and 8:30 a.m. the next morning).
•Exams Method Registration: October 28-November 12. Students have three choices for taking most exams: hand writing the exam, taking the exam on their own laptop computer, or taking the exam on a lab computer. Some professors do not permit one or more of these options (e.g., some require all students to hand write the exam).
Assuming your professor has authorized you to take the exam on computer, we will assume you are taking the exam on your own laptop. You need to register your exam-taking method only if you wish to hand-write the exam, or take it on a lab computer (subject to space availability). Please check with your professor if you are uncertain whether computer use will be permitted for your exam.
If you wish to register to take an exam by hand or on a lab comuter, log into your Webmail account, click on the Web for Students icon, and navigate to the Exam Method Registration form. The form will be available beginning October 28; the deadline for submitting an exam method request is Wednesday, November 12, at 5:00 pm.
Notice about SofTest: Students taking exams on laptop must download and install the SofTest exam-taking program. You will receive information from the Computer Center about when and how to do this. Even though you do not need to submit an Exam Method Registration form to use your laptop for exams, you do need to download and install SofTest.
Notice About Borrowing Laptops from the Computer Center: The Computer Center has a limited supply of laptop computers reserved for use in emergency situations that arise during exam period. Please contact me if you opt to take an exam on laptop, and your laptop suffers unexpected problems that cannot be remedied before your exam. The Computer Center's laptops also may be used (subject to availability) if your computer has problems immediately before or during an exam, as long as the problem is not due to your failing to properly configure or register your laptop to run the SofTest program. Because of limited supply, the Computer Center's laptops are not available for general loaning purposes during exam period, including to students who do not own a laptop or are Mac users. However, if you have exceptional circumstances that you believe justify borrowing a laptop for an exam, please contact me to discuss your situation.
Notice to Hand Writers: Students who are hand writing an exam will be placed in the same room used by laptop users for that exam. Hand writers will not be put in a separate room. We will provide free ear plugs to any hand writers who believe they may be distracted by the sound of the laptops.
Change of Division Requests. Students wishing to request a change of division for the Spring semester (e.g., from evening division to full-time or part-time day division, or vice versa) should submit a request through the Chicago-Kent Web for Students site. (Log into Webmail, https://webmail.kentlaw.edu/exchange/logon.asp, click on the Web for Students icon, and then select "Request to change division" on the left-hand menu.) Please note: Students may not switch divisions until they have completed their first year. The request form will be available beginning Monday, October 20. The deadline for submitting the form is Monday, November 3, at 5:00 pm.
NEW: Enrollment Verifications
Chicago-Kent College of Law has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide enrollment and degree verifications. Go to enrollment verifications for further details. This new service will replace enrollment certification forms through the Registrars office.
Replacement ID Cards
Beginning with the Fall 2008 semester, all incoming students have received a newly formatted Student ID card. If your card is lost and needs to be replaced, there will be at ten dollar ($10) charge to receive a new one. All continuing students with previous student ID cards who loose them, will receive one free "newly formatted student ID card". If you loose the new card, a ten dollar ($10) charge will apply.
HOW TO REPLACE THE LOST ID CARD:
- Go to the Bursars office to pay the fee during normal business hours.
- Bring the receipt to the Center for Law and Computers office Room 525 to deactivate the old card and activate the new card.
- Go to the Registrars office to get the new printed card.
